    Default Backtrack 4 VMware help

    So I went to look at the install instructions for BackTrack 4 in VMware and I got confused. I downloaded the .zip folder. Then when I went to the how-to it redirects me to a hard drive install... when that was the part I was confused with.

    Has anybody posted a how-to that actually deals with the VMware part of the install? As well as installing it once Backtrack is booted?

    Unzip the file. Place the BackTrack4-Final folder where you keep your VM's (ex. My Documents\My Virtual Machines\), open VMware, File -> Open, navigate to the BT4 folder (ex. My Documents\My Virtual Machines\BackTrack4-Final\) and select BackTrack4-Final.vmx
    This is the VM image of BT4, so no need for instalation.

    BT4 VM Install | BackTrack Linux

    That's the tutorial that I looked at.

    I've worked with Backtrack before and other Linux distros but I'm new to VMware so I got confused. I'm going to try what #mfBaranian# said to do.
